The Storefront is an exciting and growing theatre company recently established out of an abandoned storefront in West Town. We are a collection of comedians, actors, and writers who share a similar spirit and passion for performing and exploring all types of comedy.

What is The Storefront Gets Sketchy?
Storefront Gets Sketchy is The Storefront’s periodic sketch revue featuring the city’s up and coming comedic sketch writers and actors. After an open call for writing submissions, we cast actors and begin a quick turn around process that results in the writer’s sketch performed by passionate cast of actors and artists. Each revue

The Storefront team brings in a new mix of writers and actors to make each installment beautifully unique. Come and see what we’ve put together for this chapter!!!

The Trap Door Theatre is embarking on their 5th Annual Tour to Romania and Hungary and we need your help to get us there!
 
Trap Door Theatre’s production of How to Explain the History of Communism to Mental Patients directed by Hungarian guest director Zoltan Balazs has been invited to play at The Maladype Theatre in Budapest, Hungary and several cities in Romania including the prestigious International Theatre Festival of Sibiu.
The Trap Door ensemble has officially launched their Rock it to Romania fundraising campaign for 10 ensemble members to go overseas and experience Eastern-European culture first hand! Accommodations, transportation between cities, and per diem have been accounted for while in Hungary and Romania for a month.
